Norman Reedus Says Season 5 Of THE WALKING DEAD Is “Completely Insane”
The back end of The Walking Dead’s last season was quite polarizing. Rather than the action-packed, zombie-filled episodes were had become accustomed to, we were served up some rather in-depth character development that had been missing from the three previous seasons. This includes the long desired and rather surprising history on the ass-kicking Daryl Dixon, played by Norman Reedus.Many of us expected a much more elaborate and, well more bad ass history than we got. But, it works for the character and provides some depth to the character as we know him now.
Season four ended on a bit of a cliff hanger with our newly reassembled group being herded into a rail car at the veggie free camp of Terminus. The closing scene saw Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln, making a promise that their captors are in for a battle. So what can we expect for the upcoming season? According to Reedus, insanity. In a chat with EW, the actor explains what he knows so far about the anticipated season five.
“From what I know, it’s gonna be just completely insane. I sort of knew I needed like a good month to rest to jump in. The storyline they’re throwing me is a thousand miles an hour.”
Now that the “character” stuff is out of the way, here’s to hoping that the action makes a return. The season has potential to, once again, see Rick return to his old self and unleash hell on those threatening his group. There are still a lot of unanswered questions surrounding our rag-tag group of survivors, so it should be quite a ride. One thing I’d like to see is better use of the new trio that joined the group in Abe, Eugene and Rosita. The fifth season will return to AMC later this year, October is a safe bet.
